Ramsey Clark, Former Attorney General of the United States and Principled Critic of the U.S. Warfare State, Dies at 93 - CovertAction Magazine

"On April 9th, Ramsey Clark passed away at his home surrounded by his family. Clark was Attorney General of the United States from 1967-1969 under Lyndon Johnson, during which time he led the way on voting rights for African-Americans, and school desegregation and drafted the landmark Civil Rights Act of 1968, better known as the Fair Housing Act, which addressed housing discrimination."

He believed that for a country to truly be democratic, the people must
participate. They must hold their government accountable for its
actions. And he spent his life trying to do that.
